MANCHESTER, N.H. – Robert Kliskey has announced he will run for Alderman in Ward 9 this fall.
Kliskey graduated from Manchester Memorial in 2014 and is working toward a master’s degree in business administration at Southern New Hampshire University while working as a support advisor at Rise Private Wealth Management in Bedford. He has also organized 15 community trash pickups removing a total of 75 bags of trash of Manchester’s streets.
“Growing up in Manchester and leaving the state to go to University in Rhode Island, I chose to come back to my home city. I love this city and all the opportunity it has offered me, but it is heading down a road to where the next generation might not get the same opportunity. A growing homeless population, increased crime, litter, crumbling infrastructure, and a lackluster downtown is not the Manchester I grew up in, and as Alderman, I would bring the Queen City back to the high standard it once had. When running for State Representative last year, I realized I could make a difference right here at home, and that is what I plan to do,” he said.
In 2020, he earned one of two Republican nominations for State Representative in Hillsborough District 16. Following a recount, he received 1,785 votes, finishing third in the two-seat district consisting of Ward 9. Democrat Joshua Query received 1,820 votes and Democrat Barbara Shaw earned 2,336 votes.
Shaw is also the current Alderman for Ward 9.
